Martha Stewart's Shortbread Cookies

Submitted by: REISZSPIECES


Number of Servings: 24

Ingredients

    1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
    2 1/3 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
    1/3 cup coarse or sanding sugar (optional), for decorating (not included in nutritional info)

Tips

If desired, add 3/4 cup mix-ins with the flour in the first step. Also, can be dusted or sanded with sugar after baking or dipped in melted chocolate. Any decorations or mix-ins should be added to the nutritional info.


Directions

In a food processor, combine butter, confectioners' sugar, and salt; process until smooth. Add flour and pulse just until combined. Form dough into an 8-inch-long round or square log; wrap tightly in plastic and freeze until firm, 30 minutes (or up to 1 month).

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Cut dough into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Dip edges in sugar if desired and transfer to two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until cookies are golden brown around edges, 15 to 18 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cookies cool 5 minutes on sheets. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Serving Size: Makes 24 cookies
